Dr Kozar my Surgeon, he is also the original Surgeon that placed my Lap Band.
Well, I am getting ready to go to bed (yes, I will be taking a sleeping pill!!). LOL I have to get up at 4:30 am in order to be at the Hospital by 6:30 am, which is my check in time. My Surgery is scheduled for either 8 am or 8:30 am. I have seen it written both ways. I guess it doesn't matter, I will be out anyway!!
So to refresh your memory. I am having my Lap Band removed. My Band slipped a while back and just before I was to go into the Hospital to have it removed, we found out that my Neck was REALLY bad, and needed immediate Surgery, so we had to postpone the Band removal. During this time, I feel as if the Band slipped some more, as I began having more symptoms of tightness and problems eating again. So it felt like the Band slipped more causing it to tighten again, even though almost all of the fluid has been removed!!
So I am glad to have it removed. My Surgeon wanted to revise me to a Bypass. But at this time, I am not ready to have my insides rearranged!! LOL Who knows, if I continue on the way I have been, I may need it in order to cure me of Diabetes. Knock on wood, that this doesn't happen! So far I have dodged the Diabetes bullet, which is surprising since a lot of my family is Diabetic! I have lost 2 Cousins to Diabetes (one was totally Blind, the other lost both her Legs and was on a double Transplant list for Kidney/Pancreas (or was it Kidney/Liver?))....Anyway, my Mom, Brother, Aunt, etc, etc, etc has Diabetes.
So hopefully I will be posting sooner rather than later, to let you know that I am home and aok! We won't know until tomorrow whether or not I will be staying overnight in the Hospital. They usually do keep me, because of my Central Sleep Apnea. But who knows, this may be the one time they don't! So think of me tomorrow, and please send good healing thoughts.
Aloha My Friends :)
